Commemorated September 24
Troparion of St. Thecla, Tone 3
Inspired by the divine teacher's words thou wast inflamed with love for thy Creator. Thou didst disdain all earthly pleasures and endure wild beasts and fire. O glorious Thecla, companion of Paul, entreat thy divine Bridegroom to grant us His great mercy.
Kontakion of St. Thecla, Tone 8
Radiant with virginity and adorned with the crown of martyrdom, thou wast a bearer of the Faith. Thou didst turn flames to dew and tame a wild bull by thy prayer, O glorious Thecla, first woman martyr.
